Crocheted Donations Help Ohioans in Need

Thank you RoseMarie for your thoughtful donation of personal care items, cotton washcloths, and crocheted hats and a scarf.  Thank you for your on going support of Bridge and Beyond.    We truly appreciate you.

Folks as I'm typing this scheduled post, I'm sitting with a lapghan on and a fleece.  It's cold!  It was 16 when I got out of bed this morning with a wind chill making it feel like 8.  As you knit and crochet, please double check the tightness of your stitches.  With temps and winds like that we need items not to be too open.  If you can see through, and or put your fingers through your stitches, please consider bumping down to a smaller size hook/needle in order to get a more solid item.

We'll be going a slightly different direction with our working calendar in the coming year, so please keep checking in.

Do you check the item specific tabs across the top of the blog before you make items?  If not, folks please do.  It's important we make was is needed.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
